Handling Emergencies West of the Hines Hill Railroad Crossing

railroad crossing

Train traffic has increased over the years, with approximately 70 trains traveling through Hudson each day. Often, it can take 10 minutes or more for a train to clear the crossing and allow vehicles through.

In an emergency, minutes count. To plan for delays due to trains, Hudson safety forces have emergency protocols to address calls from west of the Hines Hill tracks. We have mutual aid agreements with other communities to respond to incidents west of Hines Hill. When Hudson dispatchers receive a call from an address west of the train tracks, our automatic response protocol is activated where both Hudson and other jurisdictions are called to the location. For example, when there is a fire call, Hudson Fire, Valley Fire, and Macedonia Fire are called and all units respond to that location. In an EMS emergency, Hudson EMS and Valley Fire both are called to the scene. Hudson Police also use mutual aid depending on the call. That way, when there is a train, we ensure all Hudson residents receive the safety services they need as quickly as possible regardless of where they live.
